Individual therapy is all about you and is as a safe place to explore negative thoughts, feelings, and self-destructive patterns. Everyone goes through challenging situations in life so there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand. The proper experience in therapy can help you learn new perspectives and skills so that you can develop new patterns while developing and transforming.
Family therapy helps to foster open and honest family discussions in a safe and calm environment. Families are an important and unique part of our lives which can make dealing with family issues stressful and can often contribute to a disconnect among your loved ones. Family therapy will focus on providing a safe space for families to come and sort through conflict and tension while working to resolve issues and restore peace and understanding in your family.
Parent Coaching is an available, as-needed way for parents to learn new parenting skills and strategies. Because children and families can be complex, the parent coach helps the parents problem-solve as challenges arise. A parent coach is not a therapist. Life can often seem confusing or overwhelming for children and adolescents and it may seem hard for them to make sense of the world. Parent Coaching services encompass a holistic approach for parents by integrating time management and positive parenting strategies.
Therapist vs. Coach
What is the difference?
Therapy is not coaching and coaching is not therapy; however, it is easy to confuse the two. Therapy is often about healing the past whereas coaching is typically forward-focused and designed for healthy and fully functioning individuals. Though some clients may simultaneously be in therapy, the focus of the coaching remains forward-focused, essentially picking up where therapy sometimes leaves off.
In therapy we often look at the past to understand our being in the present. In coaching we look to the future to guide us in the present. In therapy we often spend a lot of time exploring our feelings and emotions. In coaching we explore our core selves, we identify our core values and we design our preferred futures!
Both therapy and coaching is a process that can help you navigate through your personal and/or parenting challenges. We do this by helping you get in touch with your core values and your core self so that you can identify what you most desire for you and your family and then create effective strategies and solutions to achieve those goals and dreams. You will be fully supported by someone who is highly trained to lead you towards a greater YOU!
Benefits of Therapy

As a result of these changes, you should:
Feel less stressed
Feel more productive
Become better connected

Many parents appreciate a little extra guidance and support to help them navigate the journey of parenthood. Coaching is an opportunity to help you and your child, tween, or teen understand how and why they are behaving and feeling certain emotions while providing you with helpful parenting tools.
